Monkey bread is a knotty-looking loaf of bread made from buttery balls of sweet dough glued together with caramel.
Why This Recipe Works
We wanted a faster recipe for monkey bread that didn't compromise on its delicious flavor. To expedite the rising and proofing in this recipe we used a large amount of instant yeast and added sugar to the dough. Butter and milk helped keep the monkey bread dough rich and flavorful. We rolled the dough in butter and sugar to help give the monkey bread a thick, caramellike coating. The monkey bread is best served warm.
